Rain gear for longer camera lenses

5 months 2 weeks ago #672944 by Chester Foster
Before I jump off here today, let me ask what I came here to ask.  When you have longer lenses with control dials towards the front of the lens, what are you using for rain protection?

Long lens rain cover are still allowing to feel where the
control knobs are and they are always accessible through
the opening at the bottom of the lens — I don't recom-
mend it.

I use a Nikon rain coat that was offered to me for a birth-
dayby my daughter.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

I use the Canon cover and love it. Before purchasing, I was seriously considering the ThinkTank also. I admit that it's been a few years, so I can't remember what swayed me to the Canon.

Peak Design has one just like the Canon one you linked.    I've used a trash bag as well.  But the problem is my hands stick to the bag when trying to focus and adjust my lens.
